(July 6, 2015 - Carroll Township, Pa.)

It was a festive evening at Monongahela Valley Hospital (MVH) on June 29 as the health system's leadership and staff honored the members of the Auxiliary of Mon-Vale Health Resources, Inc.

"You frequently hear me tell our employees, 'Take care of each other;' but as Auxilians, you not only take care of each other - you take care of everyone," said MVH President and CEO Louis J. Panza Jr. "Whenever a need arises in the hospital, the members of this Auxiliary are always there asking, 'How can we help?' But, most of the time, you don't ask. You just put on your pink jackets and show up ready to dive in."

During the event, Auxiliary President Kay Blair presented two checks to Mr. Panza totaling $59,500. When combined with the funds that the Auxiliary donated to the hospital for its annual Gala in May, the 2015 portion of its five-year pledge to the Capital Campaign and the Volunteen Scholarship, the Auxiliary's 2015 donation totaled $61,000. According to Mr. Panza, the funds will be used for a new security system to lock down the Emergency Department when situations pose a safety risk to patients and staff; a blanket warming device for patients receiving treatment in Radiation Oncology and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy; along with new furnishings in the Same Day Surgery Waiting Room and the 7-East Oncology Family Room. This year's gift brings the Auxiliary's total donation to the hospital to approximately $3,240,000 during the past 37 years.

In addition, during the celebration, awards were presented to Auxiliary members who reached milestone hours of volunteering time at MVH. Auxilians recognized for 2,500, 1,000 and 500 hours of service include:

  • 2,500 Hours
    • Kay Blair
    • Patricia Hormell
    • Patricia Mikula
    • Peggy Pireaux
    • Jean Ripepi
    • Janet Stech
  • 1,000 Hours
    • Martha Durinsky
    • Kathleen Molesky
  • 500 Hours
    • Joyce Amatangelo
    • Florence Buono
    • Jane Hazen
    • Dolores Tegnelia

The Auxiliary also presented its Volunteen Scholarship to Reyna Jones, a recent graduate of Ringgold High School with a 4.0 QPA. who plans to pursue a degree in pre-med at the University of Pittsburgh. A resident of Monongahela, Ms. Jones volunteered at MVH for three years for a total of 257 hours in the hospital's Oncology and Emergency departments.
